Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991)

Director: Ngai Kai Lam

Starring: Siu-Wong Fan

More Info: IMDB

Plot: A young man with superhuman strength is incarcerated at a prison run by corrupt officials and seeks to use his martial arts to clean up the system.

My Rating: 8/10

Would I watch it again? Shit, yeah, Baby!

This is BFI - Batshit Fucking Insane. This is the kind of movie that will have you cheering out loud with lots of expletives and lots of high-fives with your neighbors. Take out some of the slow back story and the slow bits with his long gone girlfriend and this is one of the best group fun movies ever.

Here's just one "tiny" fight scene:

And that's just 15 minutes into the picture. It doesn't stop for another hour and ten.

If you've watched The Daily Show then you've seen the clip where a guy boxes another guy's head and it explodes but TDS shows it then reverses it and forward again? That's from this movie and that's just the tip of the iceberg as to the crazy insane shit you get throughout the picture. Run, don't walk, to get this one. Thank me later. For a small taste, go to YouTube and find some of the fight scenes. Prepare to wet yourself and those around you.
